While the COVID-19 pandemic appears to be coming to an end, people are still suffering from mental problems and looking for new therapeutic options.

Fremont, CA: Because COVID-19's physical effects are so obvious, the mental health consequences got frequently underestimated and undervalued early on when the dread of catching the virus permeated every aspect of life.

Humans are in the middle of a mental health pandemic. According to health professionals around the country, there is reason to believe that this mental health crisis will lead to an increase in cases of depression throughout the year.

This devastating sickness now affects over 17.3 million adults in the United States, according to research, with rates having tripled due to the COVID-19 epidemic. Unfortunately, antidepressant drugs do not provide relief for many people - 6.2 millionto be exact. Moreover, there is nothing as a one-size-fits-all treatment for depression.As countries recover from the COVID-19 pandemic, clinicians must focus more than ever on patients' needs, ensuring that doctors are exploring all available alternatives as soon as possible to give them the best opportunity of treatment for this disease that affects far too many people.

Many people will undoubtedly start to feel better now that vaccines are getting distributed and people are slowly restoring a sense of normalcy. Still, for others, the mental health battle will continue. Although people have all been affected by the epidemic, the frontline workers, particularly those in health care, get subjected to extraordinary stress.As a result, expect a similar increase in frontline personnel' post-traumatic stress symptoms, as well as long-term effects on their mental health.

While the COVID-19 pandemic appears to be coming to an end, people are still suffering from mental problems and looking for new therapeutic options.Because statistics show that medication therapy does not work for all depressed patients, research shows that the likelihood of remission falls in depressed patients who do not respond to multiple antidepressant medication attempts. Therefore, TMS therapy is one of my top recommendations for adult patients not respond to antidepressants.TMS therapy, or transcranial magnetic stimulation, is a non-invasive, non-drug treatment that uses magnetic pulses to stimulate brain areas that are underactive in depression. Since the start of my practice in early 2020, we've witnessed a 70percentage response rate and more than 50percent remission rate among the patients treated with NeuroStar Advanced Therapy. And this is just the start. It's essential to Informing both professionals and patients about this technology. When medications fail, hope is not lost.
